Fat Cat Guitar Components Floyd Rose Blocks
One of our most important lines is a series of blocks for Floyd Rose tremolos made in Cold Rolled Steel.
Early Floyd Rose tremolos had steel Blocks and it had a distinct affect on their tone compared to the later brass blocks .
The Floyd Rose Upgrade market is full of block replacements, but the steel ones seem to be hard to find ....till NOW
When it comes to the blocks two things matter or have an effect on the sound and feel: The size/mass of the block and the material it is made from.
So we offer OVERSIZE Blocks as well as STANDARD thickness, but all in COLD ROLLED STEEL
